Democrats elected on a promise of cleaning up the "culture of corruption" in Congress are not exactly leaping to the task, mop in hand. They plan an early show of votes on proposals aimed at removing the appearance of cozy relations between lawmakers and lobbyists. But so far there seems little enthusiasm for taking on the hard tasks of reforming campaign finance laws or even assuring that ethics rules are strictly enforced. And only a handful of lawmakers in either party have any desire to shut down the "favor factory," convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff's term for the practice of attaching pet projects to legislation without review.

BOSTON -- At precisely 4:09 p.m. on Election Day, a breaking news alert came into my e-mail courtesy of CNN. What could it be? The ultimate November surprise? A voter gone postal over the robo-calls? A candidate gone berserk at the election booth? No. "Britney Spears Filed for Divorce from Kevin Federline." Stop the presses. Or at least the Web server. This turned out to be an omen of things to come. Within hours, some hardy Republican spinmeisters, from bloggers to William J. Bennett, were attributing the takeover of the House by Democrats to nothing more than another "six-year itch."

WASHINGTON -- House Speaker Dennis Hastert, whose office has been under fire for failing to deal more aggressively with former Rep. Mark Foley's interest in congressional pages, said yesterday that he would fire anyone on his staff who covered up information about Foley's conduct. Hastert continued to stand by his aides, as investigations by the FBI and House ethics committee continued. The Illinois Republican refused to discuss any suggestion that he should resign as speaker. New polls indicate that the GOP's prospects for maintaining control of the House in November have diminished.

Culture of violence leads to shootings On Monday, children were slaughtered yet again, and the first response by the Bush administration was to say that it will look into improving safety and security in our schools ("School Shootings in Pa. Shock Amish," Oct. 3). What is the solution? Arming each Amish child with a pistol in his or her lunch pail? Lockdowns in all city schools? When will this stop? Why are thinking Americans not speaking up and demanding that our government, and we as a people, stop the acceptance of the current culture of stupidity and violence?
